How to get 450+ score in Express Entry | Canada Immigration

For many applicants who are desperate to improve their score in Express Entry, they need to remember that IELTS score is the prime ‘KEY’ to succeed. You cannot hide your age, get rid of spouse (perhaps should never think of that) and improving your education is not also an imminent decision.

So, the only thing that you can improve in short period of time is your IELTS score. Those, who have not even applied for Express Entry (EE) and wish to do so in future, please prepare best for the language exam i.e. IELTS.

Why IELTS is Important?

I have tried many iterations on CIC website with CRS calculator and came out with amazing discovery that I have explained below in details with different scenarios;

Disclaimer

Unfortunately, it was not possible for me to consider every scenario, that is why I have selected only two cases as model for explanation. Therefore, I have to take some assumptions to support my case.

Assumptions 

(1) AGE = 25 to 30 years,

(2) Marital Status = Married,

(3) Education = Two or more certificates or diploma,

(4) Spouse Education = Bachelor

(5) Work Experience = 3 years

(6) Provincial Nomination = None

(7) Job Offer = None

The only remaining factor is IELTS that will determine your fate for Canadian Immigration or Permanent Residency.

Scenario-1

Let say your IELTS score is Speaking = 7, Listening = 7.5, Reading = 7-7.5, Writing =7

Your CLB is = 8 {Convert IELTS score into CLB}

Spouse IELTS results were Speaking = 7, Listening = 6-7, Reading = 6.5, Writing =7.5-9.0

Result-1

Scenario-2

Let say your IELTS score is Speaking = 7, Listening = 8, Reading = 7-7.5, Writing =7

Your CLB is = 9 {Convert IELTS score into CLB}

Every thing else is constant. The only difference is score for IELTS which is 8 instead of 7.5 (difference of 0.5)

Result-2

Break Up Analysis:

Both have difference composition of score for each factors i.e. (A) Core / Human factors, (B) Spouse Factors, (C) Skills Transfer factors. Lets have a look at them.

 Different ways of having CLB 9

Listening = 8

Reading = 7.0

Writing = 7.0

Speaking = 7.0 

 
CLB = 9
 

You should be able to get minimum score of 8 in Listening and score of 7 in all other modules, to secure CLB 9.

Conclusion

A small difference of 0.5 in Listening module of IELTS has made huge difference of 57 for your overall score and it became 454 from 397. In other words CLB 9 can earn you 50 more marks / score compared to CLB 8.
